AOPA staff members worked long hours to help bureaucrats and lawmakers understand the special needs of general aviation pilots during WWII 1983 late 1948, AOPA was helping educate pilots about the new-fangled VHF navigation tool called "VOR" and published manuals on the subject. By the end of the 1960s, AOPA membership had climbed to 141,000 The AOPA Political Action Committee was formed in 1980 for more lobbying effectiveness. As AOPA looks back on its first 70 years, and ahead to the next century, AOPA remains at the heart of general aviation, representing a record 414,000 membersmore than any other aviation organization in the world. In May 1983, AOPA made its last move, from the Bethesda, Maryland, offices to new offices on the Frederick (Maryland) Municipal Airport. In 1997 renters and aircraft owners alike began benefiting from AOPA's FBO Rebate Program. During 1998, AOPA obtained a change in status from a not-for-profit to a tax- exempt organization The government's aeronautical charts provided AOPA a chance to combine work in both the legislative and regulatory arenas on an important initiative in Source:AOPA, Booz & Company analysis

The PAMA Technical Committee is looking into this NPRM as it would affect almost 10,000 corporate operators and over 300 airports. PAMA has formally requested that DHS/TSA extend the comment period to March 29, 2009, from the original December 29, 2008 to allow PAMA members the opportunity to review and comment on the NPRM. The following list is some highlights of the NPRM National Policy - Acceptance and Renewal of Inspection Authorization Renewal Training –This notice supersedes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Order , Volume 3, Chapter 56, Section 1, paragraph B. Additionally, this notice cancels the information regarding regional FAA Safety Team (FAASTeam) review of submitted Inspection Authorization (IA) refresher training course material and replaces it with the policy outlined in this notice. Proposed Change to IA Renewal Process In June of last year Michael Harkins, President of the First State Chapter of PAMA, sent a request to the FAA changing the IA renewal process from one year to every two years. The new regulation would read as follows: –5.92 Inspection authorization: Duration. –(a) Each inspection authorization expires on March 31 of each uneven numbered year. However, the holder may exercise the privileges of that authorization only while he holds a currently effective mechanic certificate with both a currently effective airframe rating and a currently effective powerplant rating. –(b) An inspection authorization ceases to be effective whenever any of the following occurs: –(1) The authorization is surrendered, suspended, or revoked. –(2) The holder no longer has a fixed base of operation. –(3) The holder no longer has the equipment, facilities, and inspection data required by ?5.91(c) (3) and (4) for issuance of his authorization. –(c) The holder of an inspection authorization that is suspended or revoked shall, upon the Administrator's request, return it to the Administrator.

Lean economic times in the early 1930s meant AAAE survived on the backs of a few dedicated volunteer leaders. World War II meant the cessation of meetings The association formally adopted a professional standards accreditation program In 1959, AAAE added its first full- time staff member: F. Russell Hoyt, A.A.E. Hoyt would lead the association staff until his retirement in 1983 AAAE has succeeded over the years, creating a suite of products and services that address airport industry needs, and generate the revenue required to support core association services, such as the Airport Legislative Alliance, Regulatory Affairs, and the Transportation Security Policy departments.
